Default Re: Pro Bowl: Demeco in/Mario, others alternates

This is messed up. I feel cheated for some reason. I mean, its a big deal that Demeco beat our Ray Ray, but Mario is better than Vandenbosh, and Taylor played OLB this year. Give me a break.

K Kris Brown, DE Mario Williams and FS Will Demps were all named as alternates for the AFC squad.

Nice move be the NFL to put Sean Taylor on the Pro-Bowl roster.

That's why I wasn't sitting around with bated breath waiting for it to come out. I knew I would be laughing at what a joke the current system is.

Acctually VY was like the 5th alternate. He only went because when it came down to Steve McNair it was handed to him on a silver plater.

Default Re: Serious Pro Bowl Possibilities

Congrats to DeMeco Ryans and the Houston Texans! I was not expecting DeMeco to get in but that was a pleasant surprise. As for Mario Williams I feel bad for him because he truly deserved to be a Pro-Bowler this year. But more fuel for the fire I guess. Mario should use this a motivation to have a better year overall instead of playing well in the second half of the season.

I'm glad he got in, but I don't want him to play unless he's healthy, he'll get to more probowls.

I like the AFC's three defensive ends -- Kansas City's Jared Allen, Tennessee's Kyle Vanden Bosch, and Miami's Jason Taylor. But I would can't help but wonder what happened to Houston's Mario Williams. True, his biggest game (3½ sacks) didn't come until Week 15 against Denver, but he was having a strong enough year before then to merit a trip to the Pro Bowl.

All vandenBosch did was to help the Jags, Broncos, and Bengals averaged 32.33 points in 3 losses without Haynesworth playing.

I know. As much as I hate to say it, the Jags deserved at least 1 person named to the roster, espically from their D.

Damn it, now I feel like I need a shower for saying that.

I noticed that Demps is the alternate. I wonder if he will go in Polamalu's place? Polamalu has been injured.

Default Re: Pro Bowl: Demeco in/Mario, others alternates

What does it mean to be named an alternate? Does that mean that these guys are first in line in the event that someone gets injured or backs out...or does the NFL list certain players on every team as possible alternates?

I thought the comment about Demps was a joke. I thought he has played well for our squad, but had no idea that he had distinguished himself amongs all safties to that extent...
